Want to do something meaningful with your Spring Break? Apply for Environmental Alternative Spring Break!
Want to work with amazing young people across the state of Washington?
Apply for Pipeline Project's 2016 Environmental Alternative Spring Break (EASB) program!
The UW Pipeline Project provides opportunities for undergraduates to spend their spring break connecting with students in rural or tribal communities throughout Washington State. Environmental Alternative Spring Break (EASB) provides the unique opportunity for UW students to plan and design their environmental science curriculum during winter quarter. In addition to teaching, EASB also emphasizes the importance of deepening community relationships across Washington State. Each team seeks out ways to get involved in the community during their week of teaching. As part of preparation, you will enroll in a 2-credit planning seminar in winter quarter to develop lesson plans, fundraise, and gain experience volunteering in local classrooms or environmental organizations for 2-3 hours per week.
You have the chance to make the most of your break by extending your own learning, sparking an interest in science and the environment and making a lasting impact on a group of students’ lives.
This project is supported, in part, by the UW Campus Sustainability Fund.
